Seems like everything excessive is bad. Sometimes, we parents are culprits of trying to buy our kids joy by giving them too many toys. But this is detrimental to their growth and development. What our kids need from us are not many and expensive toys but our being there when they need us.

“Children are losing the ability to play properly because they are being given too many toys and games, according to new research,” reports The Sunday Times of London. The research was motivated in part by concern in Britain that “childhood is being irrevocably altered by parents substituting toys, computers and television for spending time with their children.” After studying 3,000 three- to five-year-olds, Professor Kathy Sylva of Oxford University concluded: “When they have a large number of toys there seems to be a distraction element, and when children are distracted they do not learn or play well.”
